Messi has already hinted that this will be his last World Cup. The world will mark the Qatar World Cup as the last World Cup played by football legend Lionel Messi.
Messi is the only football player from Argentina to play in five consecutive World Cup tournaments and the youngest player in the world to participate in most tournaments.
The fans are hoping that this football legend, who creates records and creates miracles in every match, will make history in his last World Cup.

The only worry for Argentina, who are on a 35-match unbeaten streak, is the absence of superstar Giovanni Lo Celso. Lo Celso was instrumental in leading Argentina to the Copa America and Finals crowns.
He is also the most assisted player for Argentina in World Cup qualifiers. But instead of Lo Celso, Scaloni has included the midfielder Ezequiel Palacio, who has proved to be equally capable in attack and defense.
